Our sellers are thankful for their 12 idyllic years here and the new owner will be just as gratified we are certain. This glorious address offers the ultimate lifestyle providing a way of life second to none. This is a home where memories are made and this departing family has plenty of those to treasure. But the children are now ‘fully fledged’, the nest is empty and it is time to scale back a little.

Tucked at the far end of a long verdant drive reminiscent of an English country lane, is a fine home of substance on 2,425sqm, designed by Architects Vial and Bellerby, rest assured there is remarkable attention to detail and quality of finish. The slate roof, the use of schist and the oversize copper faced front door give a taste of more to come. There is a tennis court, pool, and spa, and not merely a games room but a games ‘house’, all testimony to hours of leisure and entertainment with friends and family.

Goom Landscapes have made their mark on the landscape here and plantings are luxurious. The lawn on the North West unfolds gently to the Avon River where a woodland path meanders along the boundary…a child’s magic fairyland! Inside space and style are united with flair. It is easy to see why this home is now too big for two! Living areas float across the ground floor with spaces for gathering or for quiet reflection, for working or for relaxing. There is an office with two desks and a media room equipped with projector and big screen. The kitchen is well appointed for culinary extravagance and fittings are just as upscale as you would anticipate. Miele…gas and induction, take your pick! There are bathrooms galore; you will lose count! The master suite upstairs has ‘his and hers’ walk in robes and a balcony to the north where you can oversee your ‘dominion’! A guest wing separated from the main house by huge double garaging could have many and various uses. If vehicles are your penchant, then you could have five! The Games House started life as an upmarket 3 car garage. Properties such as this are difficult and protracted to replicate.

A family oasis is firmly entrenched here, in a location and with an aspect, both hard to better. These serious sellers have made the utmost of their time here and with a smaller section not far away are ready to begin a new, albeit pared down, chapter. Will you be our second ‘grateful family’?
